Here are a few romantic adventure activities in Africa where you can surprise your partner and knock the socks off of them!

Hot air ballooning is probably one of the most popular romantic activities, especially if you want to ‘pop the question’! (Serengeti)

Balloon Safaris


Sunbathing on beautiful beaches while sipping on exotic cocktails with your loved one is one of the most relaxing and memorable experiences on many beaches in Africa. (Cape Town, Durban, Zanzibar – Nungwi Beach and many more)

Zip lining is definitely a spectacular adventure activity that can be enjoyed by couples. Soar over a green canopy of trees, with the wind running through your hair while you are safely harnessed to a pulley that is suspended on a cable. You will feel exhilarated and alive and be able to share this experience together. (Tsitsikamma Forest in Knysna, Victoria Falls and Ceres)

Zipline Tours

Picture yourselves horse riding across an open veld or on the sandy beaches while holding tight to one another. Feel the freedom and the excitement as the horse gains speed and you feel like you are completely alone in the world. (Noordhoek beach in Cape Town and Lake Malawi – Kande Beach)

Sleepy Hollow Horse riding


Canoe trips/river rafting are a very calm and quiet way of seeing Mother Nature together. Some of these are traditional dug-out canoes that you can lie back in while being poled through a canal or along a river bank. Listen to the gentle lapping of the water alongside the boat, or the sounds of birds across the waters. (Orange River, Victoria Falls, Lake Malawi, Cape Town, Okavango Delta)


Scuba diving/snorkelling in coral reefs is not only a once in a lifetime experience, but also an exhilarating romantic adventure. Picture colourful coral reefs and the most unusual kinds of marine life that will leave you speechless. (Cape Town, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Mozambique, Zanzibar, Lake Malawi and more)

Going on a hike up a beautiful mountain and ending up under a waterfall is a sure way to end up feeling refreshed and exhilarated, and maybe like a couple out of a Hollywood movie! (Crystal Pools in Cape Town, Lisbon Falls, Zambia, Bourke’s Luck Potholes)

Having a picnic for two on a soft, comfy blanket on a picturesque wine farm is the ideal way to while away the time with your loved one. Share your favourite bottle of Pinotage, Shiraz or ice-cold Chardonnay and snack on delectable treats from the local area that you have handpicked together. (Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Warwick, Spier)


Sunset cruises. Clichéd, but still so popular and alluring to any romantic couple, this activity will never go out of fashion. Don’t forget to take your camera in case you spot some incredible marine life, and of course the beautiful sunsets. (Throughout Africa)


Sitting with gorillas in a beautiful forest quietly watching their every move is such a spiritual experience that can be shared with that special someone in your life. (Uganda, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo)


Staying in a tree house is as about romantic as you can get. These beautifully secluded little houses allow you complete privacy, while still being safe in the outdoors. Sit outside amongst the sheltering of the trees on your veranda, light a fire in the braai area and share the serenity and romance of this unusual setting. (Garden Route, Knysna, Tanzania, Zambia, Kenya)
